Enza Zaden is an internationally leading vegetable-breeding company. The independent family company develops new varieties of more than 30 international and local vegetable crops all over the world. Among those crops are lettuce, tomato, sweet pepper, cucumber, radish and onion, whose seeds are produced and sold worldwide. By way of illustration: every year, Enza Zaden’s lettuce seed is used to grow around 20 billion heads of lettuce. The vegetable-breeding company invests large sums of money – thirty percent of its annual turnover - in research and development. And that pays off in the form of a constant flow of innovations on the global market.
In South Africa, Enza Zaden began making their mark with F1 hybrid onions more than twenty years ago and today the company is a well-known brand with leading vegetable growers.
